John is a sophomore from Littleton, Colorado and a graduate of J.K. Mullen High School. Before transferring to Notre Dame, John spent his freshman year at the University of San Diego, where he was the baseball beat writer for the Toreros’ student newspaper, The Vista. Switching from sports to the viewpoint arena, this year John has written columns on national and international affairs, aiming to articulate a down-to-earth perspective in a world full of “expert opinions.” Two of his more widely read pieces this year have been “Virtue as an obligation, not a choice,” and “Politics and evolution: who cares?” A third generation Domer, John is an avid baseball fan as well as a participant in Notre Dame’s Bengal Bouts.
